In this Sampler you'll discover three outstanding pieces on legal and ethical issues for archivists -- an overview of copyright plus two case studies dealing with privacy and access -- drawn from these three books:
Navigating Legal Issues in Archives by Menzi Behrnd-Klodt, Chapter 21, "Copyright and Related Rights Issues: Permissions, Releases, Music, and Moral Rights";
The Ethical Archivist by Elena Danielson, Chapter 5, "Case Study: The Cigarette Papers"; and
Privacy and Confidentiality Perspectives: Archivists and Archival Records, Chapter 10, "Balancing Privacy and Access: Opening the Mississippi State Sovereignty Commission Records" by Sarah Rowe-Sims, Sandra Boyd, and H.T. Holmes.
All archivists will face legal or ethical concerns throughout their careers. In many cases we are caught unaware, and pressure is escalated by time crunches or demanding patrons. The chapters from the three books represented here aim to equip archivists to handle these sorts of dilemmas as they arise, by presenting practical information drawn from the real-life experiences of archivists.
The SAA SAMPLER SERIES features select chapters from authoritative books on archives published by the Society of American Archivists. Produced exclusively electronically, the Samplers are designed to give readers an overview of a pertinent topic as well as a taste of the full publications.
